When you don't mind feeling old

A night of pub jazz when I was among the oldest people in the room. And the room was packed.

Jazz is in good hands - the band was Alex and Tom Ridout, Noah Stoneman, Rod Oughton and Joe Boyle (and a guest appearance from the more mature Dave Keech). They're all less than half my age and I really didn't mind.

They're also better players than I am. Don't mind that either.

It was so good to have to fight a path around the bar of one of Hitchin's oldest and coolest pubs, The Highlander. Lots of bright young things and if some of them talked a little too much during the gig, there's worse things. They were obviously loving the music.
